The Ariel Atom is a high performance sports car made by the Ariel Motor Company based in Somerset, England and under licence in North America by TMI Autotech, Inc. at Virginia International Raceway in Alton, Virginia.
There have been four Ariel Atom incarnations to date: Ariel Atom, Ariel Atom 2, Ariel Atom 3 and Ariel Atom 500 V8. The current model is the Ariel Atom 3 which is the most powerful apart from the V8 model. The latter is a limited production model with a 500 bhp (373 kW; 507 PS) V8 engine made from two Suzuki Hayabusa engines.
The Ariel Atom is unusual in that it is exoskeletal — the chassis is prominently visible from the outside — and therefore lacks a roof, windows and other features normally found on road cars although a small windshield is available as an optional extra.
Jeremy Clarkson, TOP GEAR BBC, challenges the Atom to prove more fun than a motorbike – with astounding and face melting results!

End of Watch
Synopsis: A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, End Of Watch stars Academy Award(R) nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles. Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city’s most dangerous corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay

Kart racing can get your adrenalin pumping as you dash down the straightaways and negotiate hair pin turns. But this is no fun if the Summer sun is beating down on you and you’re choking on the fumes and dust of your fellow drivers. Well science has come to the rescue. K1 Speed has replaced the karts’ gasoline engines with powerful electric motors which makes things quieter and eliminates the fumes. And since there are no fumes you can bring the whole course indoors and enjoy racing in air-conditioned comfort. K1 Speed has setup shop in Austin in a huge warehouse area on McHale Court just south of the Intersection of Burnet Road and Braker Lane.
